Heating up..clothes not getting dry just warm and damp
I already cleaned out all of the vents and I tested the sensor which did not a show a problem Next I need to know if it is the Burner coils (13/14) how do I check and if I purchase them are they easy to replace without a service tech. I love out on the country and the nearest neighbor with a dryer is 10 min and the nearest town is 35 min. HELP!

You vent could be the problem. Snow blocking the vent can cause the dryer heat to shut down rapidly. Make sure your vent is open to the outside. Get some windex and clean them moisture sensors inside the machine. If a film developes on them then moisture cannot be detected by the control. It might think the clothes are dry and shut her down.

Remove the vent completely and clean it out 100 percent. Elbows (corner bends) will hold more than you think causing the dryer to keep the heat off. The sensors for the newer style dryers detect plugged up vents and shut down the heating modes. If cleaned and still no heat the spark ignitor has gone bad
Depending on how damp they are, it could be normal or you could have a plugged dryer vent. I say that because on these dryers, the software in the control is programed to leave cloths a little damp in the sensor dry. This is for energy efficiency and less shrinking on clothing. If they are coming out to damp and you need to run them through two cycles to dry them, then the vent is plugged, either in the dryer or the house, and needs cleaned out. When the vent is plugged, the moisture isn't getting out, and the cloths will not dry.
This link shows the next likely cause of your issue. Remove the front panel and inspect the sensor bar which is located at the 4 o'clock level on the drum bulkhead, ( see the first link for location). Ascertain that 2 wires are connected to it and that black sensor bar is not cracked or broken.
The vent may be stopped up, or the vent hose crimped so the air cannot escape, you can check the air flow at the vent on the outside of the house while the dryer is running.
try cleaning the vent and the lint screen with a vacuum cleaner, you may need to replace the vent hose, this should solve the problem
It is possible. However, as with all dryers, check your venting first. Is the vent hose kinked or clogged? Does it run for a long length? All of these factors contribute to heating problems. To test, run a load wih the vent hose detached and see what happens.
Most common cause of this is a clogged venting going to the outside to test this remove the vent from the back of the dryer and run a load if it drys ok them you know you have a venting issue and will need to be cleaned out if not plz repost and we can look deeper into it
I am assuming you are cleaning the lint filter. Check the vent pipe out the back. If it vents into the wall, the piping leading to outside may be plugged. Your washer is spinning the clothes good, right? If the clothes are excessively wet they will take longer to dry also. If its practical, remove the vent hose and let it dry blowing into the room. It may suck but just once for a test.
